Patio From Blog Cabin 2012

Cobblestone-style concrete pavers form the foundation of a circular patio that perches above Blog Cabin's sloped backyard.

Steeply sloped, Blog Cabin's backyard was terraced to accommodate a circular patio, an outdoor gathering space that extends the party well into evening. An outdoor fireplace serves as the patio's focal point and a handcrafted Western Red Cedar hot tub is tucked behind a privacy fence of pine. "The circle pattern softens the edges of the yard and the cobblestones give the yard beautiful texture," says Yard Crashers host Matt Blashaw.
